Letter To The Editor: Millersville Park And Traffic Accidents


We have all seen or heard about traffic and car accidents on Route 3 north and south at the Millersville Road crossover by the Wawa gas station and Royal Farms store.

I am a member of the Indian Landing Community Association and work with a group of members on the plans for Millersville Park to be constructed on Millersville Road. The one area I was asked to examine is traffic on Route 3 north and south and the crossover intersection of Millersville Road.

Our group has devoted considerable effort to concerns about the planning of this park. One of the major areas of concern is traffic and county officials ignoring our questions about this area, efforts to make it safe, traffic data and improvements. The one written response to questions asked at a public meeting in 2023 was “noted by the county.” It took much citizen effort to find the statistics on traffic accidents and traffic accident fatalities at this intersection. Since the county officials were unresponsive, a public information request was made to the Maryland State Police department about the accidents and fatalities on Maryland Route 3 - north and south and Millersville Road for the five-year period from 2019-2023. Here are the number of crashes.

Fatalities - three

Non-fatalities - 273

What are Anne Arundel County officials doing to correct this dangerous roadway before Millersville Park plans proceed?
